    No idea, but that's what the tweet is implying.

    My own personal judgment, she does a fine job and I can see her competency as a prosecutor.

    But then, I’m not trying to invalidate her accomplishments using some stale old trope on women needing to sleep their way to the top to get to the top, to take her down. That’s super sexist.

    I do think Dems have a problem here though. From John Kerry’s swift boat accusations to Obama’s birther fiasco - it’s all some form of invalidation of something fundamental about them. Like, they’re somehow fundamentally flawed. Except, the flaw never really pans out, so it’s all fake, but the stain of the accusation remains. And, it’s really the person who is making the accusations, doing the invalidating, who is in the wrong.

    You’ll have to look up the details, but his entire war service became invalidated because he was portrayed as someone who drives his boat away from action, or something like that. So, he was basically painted a coward. (And then you have Trump who got a doctor’s note.)

    I just think anyone reasonable can see that John Kerry is a patriot. That Obama is American. That Joe Biden likes people. And Kamala Harris is an extremely capable and competent prosecutor.

    This strategy of invalidating someone’s character really works.

    The job she got from her partner is a pretty small part of her resume: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kamala_Harris

    For the record, I wasn't suggesting that the tweet reply was 'true', or that I supported the position.


    I'd just like to point out, though, that we ought to be careful of allowing a particular spin of identity politics to excuse the practice of nepotism. Nepotism, either on the giving or the receiving end, is not something we should allow ourselves to overlook on the basis of someone's gender or that it's part of their 'personal life'. These are public servants we're talking about, and it's in the public interest to know if they ever engaged in a practice like nepotism.

    If someone like Kamala Harris made use of nepotism to get where she got, then that is a fact relevant to the public interest. You're referring to this:
    Her boyfriend appointed her to a political position - our response to that should not be 'ugh *eyeroll*! Her private life is irrelevant. Typical sexism implying she slept her way to the top!'. No...

    It's functionally equivalent to having your father appoint you. It's nepotism. It's not 'anti-feminist' to point that out, though we should note how issues of identity politics clouds this whole discourse.


    Anyway... I should probably say: I support the Dems, I hope they win, and she seems like a good pick. Just don't forget to scrutinise your public servants, even if you intend to vote for them.

    Honestly, just meh. She's a clone of Hillary basically. And a strange case of VP overshadowing the main candidate in personality. If the pick was of someone like Tulsi Gabbard, things would be much more exciting.

    Quite honestly, that comment became a joke retroactively. I seriously considered locking the thread but later decided to reign in my ENTJ tendencies.

    I remember this SNL skit where the actress playing Kamala Harris referred to herself as a "bad bitch."

    I thought Warren would’ve been the front-runner, but she would’ve tanked in the debates.
    Not exactly. Nepotism is what’s happening right now with Ivanka and Jared. Infidelity is what Trump committed, with every single one of his wives.

    The implication with Harris, it sounds like, is she’s a hypocrite for standing for female empowerment when part of the basis of her power came from having sex with a more powerful man. Or, that she’s betraying women for accepting the nomination with Biden.

    Maybe she did. Maybe she is. I don’t know 100%. It doesn’t seem like it to me...sounds like a reach. Plus, that’s not a requisite for me in a political candidate. I’m not looking to elect the homecoming queen. F* that.

    I do agree if it’s the line of attack that’s going to be used against her, she should have a response ready.

    Exactly! It's some of the most egregious nepotism our country has ever seen. At least when President Kennedy appointed his brother attorney general, his brother was at least qualified for the job.
